We’ve been doing lots of traveling this summer and my daughter loves to document her adventures. I picked up a couple of inexpensive notebooks from the Dollar Store and embellished them with the help of my Cricut. They turned out so cute!
Here are the supplies I used to great the brown travel notebook:
The project came together super quick (and cheap)! I used the Stainless Gold Adhesive Foil and cut the Not All Who Wander Are Lost SVG with my Cricut. You don’t have to pay for images with the Cricut, they have plenty of images you can use. Plus there are several sites with FREE svg images you an use. I just really like some of the images on Etsy, I have a gift card and I like to support the crafty folks over there, so I often buy special images for some of my projects.
Once the image was cut and I weeded out all the extra pieces of the image I added a piece of clear transfer paper to the top of the image.
Then I simply pulled of the backing so the foil was ready to adhere to the notebook.
This is what the image looked like before it was ready to be applied.
This went on super easy! I love the gold against the brown notebook!
Ahhh, I love it! It turned out better than I imaged. The image is perfect.
I also make a version with black notebook and used the following supplies:
I’m so please with how they turned out and they were so quick and easy! I love that you can take something inexpensive and personalize it with the help of the Cricut.
Don’t have a Cricut machine and you are wondering which Cricut Machine is right for you? Here are the different types of machines listed from the oldest model to the newest.
Cricut Explore One – This machine needs to be hooked up to your computer (unless you buy the bluetooth adapter). It does not cut and write at the same time. If you are looking for a the most inexpensive option, this would be a great option.
Cricut Explore Air – This machine is wireless, you do not need to be connected to your computer. It will cut and write at the same time. This would be my recommendation if you just plan on doing paper crafts and vinyl.
Cricut Explore Air 2 – This machine is the same as the Cricut Explore Air, the only difference is it cuts up to 2X faster.
Cricut Maker – Brand new machine has an expandable suite of tools and advanced Rotary and Knife blades. Cricut Maker cuts hundreds of materials, from the most delicate fabric and paper to matboard and leather. If you like to sew too, this might be your best option. (Discounts are valid on the new machine)
